Default Rear inside door handle jammed--FIXED. THANKS.

The door handle doesn't move far like it should to unlock the rear door. The lock **** moves correctly and unlocks and locks the door for the outside handle to work. But the inside handle won't work.

How do I fix it?

Just to be sure, check to see if someone has turned on the child safety feature on the door. It'* a little switch near where the door panel makes the bend for the wheel well, on the inside of the door, maybe half way down.

Exactly what I was thinking. My Mom was in the back seat of my car once and must have bumped the tab on the safety lock. She couldn't figure out why she couldn't get out. She thought I was messing with her.

Definitely sounds like what it is, though.

That was it. I am embarrassed I didn't think about that. Haven't used them in so long. My wife had bumped it hurrying to get into the back with a little one crying in its carseat.

Glad that you got it fixed. No need to be embarrassed. How many of us may have done the same thing. It is so often overlooked when it isn't used often.
